CN 3309 - Executive train assigned unit sporting a new herald.
Author: newtonville150

Sept 18th. That was a sweet 120 with the business train on the back. ex-CREX leader and ex-CREX DPU facing forward.
By me at Springhill Junction at 12:02. Note the AC44C6M sporting a new "throwback" herald on the long hood.

What the 100th Anniversary of Canadian National should look like. Although maybe red and gold on the herald.

Great catch and thanks for the excellent set of photos.  I wonder if that great-looking throwback herald
is in French on the conductor's side. That is a sharp looking business train; hope it makes a run down the Illinois Central

That's a nice catch, John. May I ask the identity of the third unit? That's a very fresh-looking 4700 or 4800 series diesel. The tilted wafer is fine, but seriously, they couldn't make it about 90% of that size, so that it's not resting on the walkway? That's just looks poorly planned.

A recently repainted GP38-2 #4938 (a fairly recently acquired ex-UP GP38N.)

Heritage unit would look better with a maple leaf worked into the design.  OK as is, but a maple leaf would improve it a lot.

Apparently not from the images I've seen on FB

I love the heritage logo, and think it should (must!!) be accompanied by the classic and beautiful two tone green scheme.  While we're at it, lets bring back BCR green too.
